WILLIAMSTOWN -- The Hamilton defense did an outstanding job clamping down on the Williams offense as the Ephs (6-5, 3-2) had only one shot on goal in the first period and 10 in the game. The one shot the Ephs were able to score on wasn’t enough in the 3-1 loss.
Hamilton broke a 1-1 tie on Jill Tokarczyk’s unassisted goal at 18:55 of the second period. Williams’ Cristina Bravi tied the game on a power-play goal at the 47 second into the second.
